Our Core Values:


Integrity is at the core of everything we do at GHA. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Our DEI committee, which was established in 2020, cultivates partnerships to advance DEI within our firm and our community. Our DEI initiative is enriched through our long-standing partnership with Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep. By collaborating on their “Corporate Work Study Program,” we’ve been providing educational opportunities and career pathways for youth since 2004.


At GHA, dedication is the driving force behind our success. Our team of professionals embodies a commitment to excellence, consistently going above and beyond to secure client satisfaction and project superiority. A culture of continuous learning and growth defines GHA and is reflected in our comprehensive training programs, enriching mentorship opportunities, and promising career advancement initiatives. The strong collaboration among all of our team members further enhances our mission.


At GHA, our passion for community involvement is a vital part of our identity. We deeply value our role in positively impacting the places we inhabit and work. This commitment to making a difference is evident in our active engagement with environmental conservation efforts. Our longstanding partnerships, such as that with Friends of the Chicago River, enable us to participate directly in initiatives aimed at creating cleaner and more sustainable waterways for the enjoyment of future generations.
